(22) OHIO WELCOMES (41) TRI-CITY ROLLER DERBY FOR INTERNATIONAL BOUT

  Fresh off their 2-1 performance at Quad City Chaos hosted by Toronto Roller Derby, the Ohio Roller Girls will host their second home bout of the season against, well, more Canadians!  After splitting bouts with the #1 and #2 ranked teams in Canada, Ohio will try their luck against the third best team north of the border, Tri-City Roller Derby (Kitchener, ON), on Saturday, April 5th, at the Lausche Building.  Historically, the Ohio Roller Girls are 9-1 against international teams, including a 2-0 record against Tri-City.  The two teams last met in May 2012 when Ohio was victorious 159-113.  Prior to that, Ohio also took the win in June 2011, 131-76.    The Ohio Roller Girls will have the advantage coming into this weekend’s bout, having already played four bouts in the 2014 season.  They were victorious in the season opener against Nashville 194-128, and secured two additional victories at Quad City Chaos against Bleeding Heartland (Bloomington, IN) 291-93, and Toronto 185-172.  Their lone loss this season was to the Montreal New Skids on the Block 385-158.  Ohio will feature The Smacktivist and Kitty Liquorbottom on the jammer line, as both played tremendously well at Quad City Chaos.  For their efforts

OHIO BRINGS HOME FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON AGAINST NASHVILLE, 194-128

It's been over six months since Columbus got to see the Ohio Roller Girls play a home bout. August was the last time OHRG graced the Ohio Expo Center before tournament season and, if you missed it, what a tournament season it was! OHRG won two out of three playoffs games, which earned them their very first trip to Championships in November. After a great 2013 and a lot of hard work in the off-season, OHRG was ready to hit their hometown track on March 8th to start the 2014 season off right. For the season opener, OHRG welcomed the Nashville Rollergirls Music City All Stars. The two teams last played against each other in 2010, with Ohio falling to Nashville. Four years later, Ohio wasn’t going down so easily. Ohio started out the first half with a strong mix of veterans jamming, including Kitty Liquorbottom,  The Smacktivist, and Bratislava Bruiser. They gained immediate advantage over Nashville, including the first power jam of the game going to Lora “Outa My” Wayman, but they didn’t stay ahead for long.  After five lead changes, Nashville jammers, including Ann T. Histamine and Chelsea Dagger, pulled the final lead change of the half in their favor with

NAPTOWN FALLS TO OHIO 106-232, QUALIFIES FOR PLAYOFFS

The (17 DNN, 18 WFTDA) Naptown Roller Girls were in desperate need of a bout to qualify for the 2013 playoffs after the unexpected cancellation of their June bout, leaving them one Division I bout away from qualifying for playoffs (primarily due to their bouts against Cincinnati and Windy City being unsanctioned). True to their motto of “Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime,” the (23 DNN, 20 WFTDA) Ohio Roller Girls agreed to play the ladies from Indianapolis at their Columbus practice facility Wednesday night.  Even with the bout scheduled on short notice, both squads were able to field their primary teams as Ohio soundly defeated Naptown 232-106.  The bout and victory for Ohio not only ensured that Naptown would be playing in the post-season, but it was a bout Ohio wanted after losing to Naptown 86-222 with a short roster at last year’s Thrill of the Spill. The bout kicked off as Ohio’s Phoenix Bunz was sent to the box for a back block on the third jam. Unopposed, Naptown’s Maiden America snatched an early 8-1 lead for the visiting Tornado Sirens.  The following jam placed Naptown’s G-Rocket in the box as Burnadeath and Amy Spears forced a track cut.  The power jam for

Ohio Defeats Tampa Bay 273-119, Falls to Atlanta 186-247

Before you read the recaps from OHRG's visit to Atlanta, check out this killer highlight reel: Ohio Defeats Tampa Bay 273-119 Only a few positions in the WFTDA rankings separated the (19 DNN, 23 WFTDA) Ohio Roller Girls and the (28 WFTDA) Tampa Bay Derby Darlins, but after sixty minutes of play, that gap seemed much wider.  In their first of two bouts of the day, OHRG caused twice as many power jams as their opponents and skated toward their matinee with Atlanta with a decisive 273-119 victory over Tampa.  In the process, Phoenix Bunz posted her third 100+ point bout of the season as she put up 121 of Ohio’s 273 points. While Bunz’s point total is impressive, the defining factor of the bout was Ohio’s pack.  Time and time again, Loraine Acid, Outa My Wayman, and Bratislava Bruiser would knock Tampa’s jammer out-of-bounds, retreat, and draw a track cut.  Ohio’s physical pack play seemed to cause problems for Tampa, as star jammer Little A missed significant time in both the first and second half due to hard Ohio blocks. The bout started well for Ohio as Phoenix Bunz posted a 9-0 jam.  Tampa’s Lil Bit got the Floridians on the board two
